Starting Point would like to thank acknowledge the Berkshire Community Foundation for supporting us and our work.
BCF is a foundation that raises funds for local charities and groups and equips them with grants to help build a stronger and fairer Berkshire.
First supporting Starting Point in 2015, BCF has supported our project over 3 years through mulitple grants around areas such as youth volunteering, recruiting mentors, project development and general running costs.
However, BCF is special and unique when it comes to bid writing and project shaping. They are very relational in their communications around applications and reports. They also hold an annual symposium which is a brilliant networking and equipping event for multiple charities across the county.
Without BCF, Starting Point wouldn’t have had the means to mentor over 120 young people in the local area and battle the root issues regarding unemployment.
Thank you BCF!
“I have been privileged to witness first-hand the very real and transformative impact BCF’s support has had on the lives of local young people.”
Sam Lloyd – Starting Point Project Manager
